I encourage all couples considering marriage in their future, to engage in premarital counseling. When couples educate themselves about conflict and communication style, stress management, money, chores, beliefs about marriage and kids, and what it means to be loved, they gain knowledge needed to find a higher level of satisfaction. In fact, couples who participate in pre-marriage programs, experience a 30% increase in marital success.
I use the Symbis Assessment tool, which helps you unpack all the important topics to save your marriage before it starts. It’s crazy that most couples spend more time planning their wedding than they do educating themselves about what it means to be married!
Working with Tory for premarital counseling was one of the best decisions we made for our marriage.
Tory provided a safe space for us to communicate, and she guided us through sessions in a way that gave us tools to strengthen our relationship and smooth our path to marriage. Neither of us had experience with this type of counseling, so her approachable demeanor and balanced style of mediation allowed us to reach new depths of understanding.
In fact, our work with Tory continues to have a positive influence on our relationship as we approach our first wedding anniversary with joy and excitement.
